It’s the debate OG&E as well as the Oklahoma Corporation Commission can’t seem to escape:

Should we bury power lines and reinforce them to prevent massive power outages during our wild and crazy weather events?

Power outages were minimal last week compared to October when hundreds of thousands (more than 300k) were without electricity for weeks. So what would it take to lessen the chances of us losing lights? We talked to a former member of the Oklahoma Corporation Commission who has pushed for this. We also hear from the OCC and OG&E about the possibility.
